Tom Holland is one fearless guy - embarrassing the God of Thunder for good measure through his personal Instagram account as the two Marvel men decided to take their film preparation public. The young British actor wanted to show how well his stunt work was progressing in comparison to the sluggish Australian, managing to flip in mid-air with seeming ease.
The 20-year old made his debut in the franchise starring as Spider-Man in a cameo during Captain America: Civil War and although his popularity will get a major bump courtesy of the video, he still lagged behind on the social media love with only 230,000 views to Hemsworth's 1.5m and counting. Holland is the third actor of modern times to play the Peter Parker character on the big screen, following on from three Tobey Maguire and two Andrew Garfield pictures.
Holland Ready To Go It Alone In Spider-Man: Homecoming
Having got a taste for the big stage, next year will be the time for Tom Holland to spin his web and provide a fresh take on the superhero. Spider-Man: Homecoming is a mixed casting bag of Marvel regulars, Grade A talents and emerging actors ready to make their mark alongside the Brit.
Names like Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Robert Downey Jr., Kenneth Choi, Donald Glover, Michael Keaton, Logan Marshall Green, Martin Starr and comedian Hannibal Buress are just some of the people ready to share the new adventure with Holland.
Director Jon Watts Shares In The Instagram Revelations
It appears youngsters like Tom Holland aren't the only ones keen to get their work out on social media. Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts showed some green screen action with the new superhero as a looming dark shadow lingered hauntingly behind the actor accompanied with the caption "Tom + spooky shadow."
Fans can only speculate until the movie hits cinemas on July 7, 2017 with Watts' cinematic history not really giving any indication as to the tone of the picture. Working as a director for the parody production Onion News Network, the 2015 Kevin Bacon thriller Cop Car and the 2014 horror movie Clown, the next Spider-Man instalment could be anything.
